in washington obviously is over chuck hagel. that's going to be the big news. >> that's a fantastic transition. let me do that now. today president obama is expected to nominate former republican senator chuck hagel of nebraska as the next defense secretary. hagel, a decorated vietnam combat veteran, would be the first enlisted soldier to hold that cabinet post. his confirmation, however, is -- can you believe this -- shaping up to be a testy battle with the republicans. even though he is a republican. a number of republicans have suggested they will challenge their former colleague with tough questions on his foreign policy record. >> his views with regard to israel, for example, and iran and all the other positions that he's taken over the years will be, you know, i think very much a matter of discussion during the confirmation process. >> so you're not predicting smooth sailing for chuck hagel? >> i think it will be a lot of tough questions of senator hagel, but he'll be treated fairly by republican s in the senate. >> quite frankly, chuck hagel is out of the mainstream of thinking i believ
republican senator chuck hagel to be the next secretary of defense. >> our sources are telling us that is supposed to be in the next few days. the former republican lawmaker, the former nebraska senator chuck hagel has been a long-time friend of the president. when the president was senator travelled together to iraq and afghanistan. but there is already heavy opposition to the selection of chuck hagel if it is to happen, if he is to be nominated, most of it from within his republican party because he was fiercely against the troop surge led by george w. bush and a lot of opposition for comments he made dating back about seven or eight years ago when he referred to the jewish lobby as opposed to the pro israel lobby. senator lindsey graham described this as if it happens to be an in your face nomination. >> we will check back with you later. >>> let's get back to the issue of raising the nation's debt limit. lindsey graham pretty much stated the republican position today. >> if you raise the debt ceiling by a dollar you should cut spending by a dollar that is the way to go forward

nominees. look at the chuck hagel nominee. they've been hanging them out to dry essentially. and for members of congress to have their opportunity to throw shots at them. it's been rather interesting and rare that the transition has been so bumpy, especially for a president going into its second term. but, look, there's still a lot of turnover going into the cabinet. even though the president announce three cabinet members are staying on for a while. who knows if that's going to be six months, a year, two years. we'll see if he's going to nominate more women. i do believe he'll be under immense pressure to appointment the secretary of labor to succeed hill da solis. i want to bring in charlie rangel. congressman. >> to see you as always. first black president. he's getting questions about diversity. are you concerned? >> of course, i'm concerned. any questions are fair and the record speaks for itself. >> if the record speaks for itself, what does it say going into the second term? >> it's as embarrassing as hell. we've been through all of this with mitt romney. and we were

nebraska senator chuck hagel to follow leon panetta as secretary of defense. here is senate minority leader mitch mcconnell as stephanie mentioned on one of his many appearances on the talk shows from abc's this week with mcconnell talking about his priorities for whoever takes over as secretary of defense. >> whoever is nominated for secretary of defense is going to have a have a full understanding of our close relationsship with our israeli allies, the iranian threat and the importance of having a robust military. >> he's just a bundle of energy. hagel is a vietnam war veteran and a moderate republican. he's taking heat especially from fellow republicans over his support of israel, whether or not he's supportive enough and whether or not he's willing to take a hard enough stance against iran. also today, the president is going to nominate his counterterrorism adviser brennan to succeed petraeus as head of the c.i.a. we're back after the break. that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one
republican senator chuck hagel as defense secretary. coming up at 7:15, why members of hagel's own party say they are against his nomination. >>> at the same white house event this morning, president obama will nominate john brennan as the new cia director. he's currently the counterterrorism and homeland security adviser. he's also a 25-year cia veteran. president obama considered nominating brennan for the job four years but brennan withdrew his name after being criticized during the bush administration. >>> 49ers fans are ready. in a couple of hours tickets go on sale for saturday's big playoff games against the green bay packers. but knows tickets will not be easy to get. ryan flores is live in san francisco. any idea how many tickets are up for grabs, ryan? >> reporter: very few, dave. very few. that's the latest we're hearing from the team. if you are a 49ers' fan you are probably hoping this week goes by fast because you are looking forward to the game and it was messed to be an -- it's expected to be an amazing game and aaron rodgers is coming back. colin kaepernick. tickets, yes, th
of those as the vice president. but chuck hagel, coal colin powell supposed to be on "meet the press" this sunday. does he have the political power to smooth the waters in washington, d.c.? chuck hagel being seen as a split from the neocon conservative leftovers. >> i do think colin powell lends credibility to the nomination of chuck hagel. but there are key senators like senator chuck schumer that will make a big difference. with regard to senator schumer, i cannot speak more highly than senator schumer. i was seeking the aim accusations when i was running as senator of pennsylvania in 2010. senator schumer called me and came in to philadelphia and met with the jewish literee leaders having understood having been in the military, we would have laid down our lives for the defense of israel. i went to the middle east with senator hagel and heard him talk about having the strength of having america defend israel. my take on end of the day, senator schumer critically will probably do what he did once for america, defend that that is best for national security interests. i think he's goi
. you take somebody like chuck hagel who has already signaled to the iranians he's taken off any military strikes in the event of them having nuclear capability, that this can't be the best personality we have. anti-israel and so forth. so not only did he ignore any women in the picks, he's picked people who are not qualified. >> when you talk about anti-israel, talk about what you mean. that's been disproven, john from here to sunday. >> what happened is chuck hagel is going back and changing history. first of all, he did go back and say he does not believe the right way ever to stop iran is to have any type of military strike possibility. now, you got to pressure remember, this is the same president who already took out the russians -- he was going to be more flexible negotiating missile defense. now somebody already is tipping off the iranians that he's going to be flexible on negotiations. second of all, chuck hagel was very, very critical of the israel and jewish lobbying in washington, d.c., said it was too aggressive. many in the israel and jewish community took that as a
a fascinating story regarding charles schumer. it seems that chuck schumer is the key to chuck hagel's failure or success. tell us why. >> that's right. and first we have to do happy friday. >> happy friday. >> happy friday. >> boy, do we need that. >> and this is a surprise. senator schumer has been telling his allies in new york, especially jewish groups, that would be, quote, very hard, very hard for him to support chuck hagel for pentagon head because of his positions on israel the other day. the real canary in the coal mine on the trouble that the hagel nomination has faced was on "meet the press" several weaks ago when senator schumer surprisingly wouldn't commit to supporting him. and usually when the president has a nominee, favorite nominee, a name out there, the number three democrat in the senate, chuck schumer, is going to say sure, i'll support him. he said he's going to listen for the hearings. and that's where he still is. just wednesday at a private breakfast at park avenue winter, one of those fancy restaurants up there, senator schumer was saying that he was very uneasy about
no nomination, but lawmakers are lining up for and against former senator chuck hagel, the frontrunner for secretary for defense. an announcement could come as soon as tomorrow. both democrats and republicans have questioned his record and signaled a bruising confirmation battle could be ahead. the top republican, mitch mcconnell says he is taking a wait-and-see approach on the possible nomination. richard shelby from alabama is here. you served with chuck hagel. what are your thoughts about him as a potential secretary of defense? >> i have known him a long time, he has had a great experience. the system will have to play out. if he is nominated, he will go before the armed services committee and let's see what happens. he is experienced. he is a combat veteran. he has been around. he does bring more than a little dust up with him. let it play out. let's see what happens. >> the dustup, does that concern you? he has made what some have interpreted to be anti-semetic, or anti-israeli comments? >> i think it concerns, not just me, but a lot of people. he would be secretary of defense. i
nominations, john kerry, chuck hagel and john brennan they are all white males. does the president have a diversity problem? hey, we'll get into that. afterall, he is the first african-american president. but first the latest out in los angeles, here she is with today's current news update, lisa ferguson. hi, lisa. good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. vice president joe biden continues his talks on gun control today. he's meeting at 2:15 this afternoon with representatives from the video gaming community along with researchers who study the effects of simulated violence on young kids. last night's meeting with the hollywood entertainment industry went relatively well according to representatives at the meeting. they said the industry appreciates being included in the dialogue and looks forward to doing its part in seeking meaningful solutions. it still is not quite clear though what more washington can do to force tv shows and movies to temper the violence. >>> as for yesterday's meeting with the nra that, one didn't go so well. yesterday's talks had nothing to do with keep
for treasury secretary, and chuck hagel as secretary of defense, which could be the president's biggest battle. i'm going to bring in now jason johnson to talk about this. he is a professor of political science and the chief political correspondent at politic365. let's start with chuck hagel because he's republican, bipartisanship we thought about here, kumbaya moment. not working out so well. >> there's no kumbaya moments in washington, d.c. republicans are still bitter. a lot of them don't like that chuck hagel has been so close to president obama for a long time. i think this is a bunch of sort of chest beating right now. i think hagel will get through. obama might have to fight for it but i think he gets through. >> you don't think it will be a squeaker. some say he may not get the nod. >> there are a lot of republican who is will come out and say we have a with him, we have to vet him, but many believe the constitutionality of the president being able to select the cabinet. a lot of republicans feel in the end we'll let him through. the president should be able to this have his cabinet. w

about chuck hagel, to potentially being confirmed as the new secretary of defense whar what is the reaction in afghanistan? >> i can tell you with the afghan officials, they will work with anyone, but at the same time, they do in the think that americans will not have a say on their future. when you talk to them, they say, it doesn't matter to them. >> no matter who is in the post, they do not see them as working with them in the capacity they have in the past? >> they say they want the afghans taking the lead, that even means when it comes to washington decisions. >> safe travels, thank you for joining us. >>> the president had more on his plate than afghanistan, he is trying to put together a team to successfully craft his second term agenda. that is meaning a cabinet. we are our guests with us. it's great to have you all here and you know, a lot has been made of the first four of the president's major appointments. they are all white men. heather has the president fallen short of the diversity standard that he set in the first administration? >> if you look at the totalit
of senator hagel for defense, and senator kerry for state. i'll take those seriously. i was a missionary in honduras and i'm passionate about the americas. i want to bring us closer together. we need to do a lot of work on the budget. i was governor at a tough time. i had -- i left office with a smaller budget general fund budget than what i started. i had to make painful spending decisions, but i learned how to do them. there is a way to cut spending where you don't have to shred the safety debt or endanger the economy. we have to find reasonable spending cuts to avoid the unreasonable sequestration. i'm on the budget committee, my third committee, and we'll be working on that out of the gate. >> i don't know how you'll find time in the day to do else but budget. >> that will be big. >> facing this debt ceiling coming up in february. we just backed away, though inches away from the fiscal cliff. do you feel like this is the biggest issue that's facing americans now? >> it is. it's a combined issue. we were talking on break before we started, it's a little bit about fiscal budget, and th
confirmation process for chuck hagel. we were talking a lot about this yesterday. also some other nominees as well. but you say the white house is looking forward to these fights. why would that be? >> no, that's exactly right. this is a real window into why the president made this tough choice of chuck hagel. and that is we talked to people around the white house who said that the president wants fights with congress. and there's both a short-term strategy here and a long-term strategy. in the short term, the president wants to take advantage of the fact that he's the only person in these negotiations who's not running for re-election. so he can afford to be tough. he can afford to stand up for what he said. second, simple contempt by the president. these republicans who lost to him so badly in 2012, in his view, just won't take yes for an answer. so there's a little bit of exasperation by the president. but pull back the camera, and you see the bigger strategy, which is looking ahead to the midterm elections in 2014. by picking tough fights with the hill, the president uses his office to
've got chuck hagel who he's trying to sell as a great infantry man. i love nurses, but they shouldn't be the head of hhs. we need qualified people with credibility with the other side. >> this whole thing's sort of this insider liberalism. >> right. >> it seems to me, ari, that's basically what jack is. he's an insider liberal, he's going to take his marching orders. you know, this administration runs everything from the oval office and president obama's ideology, which is a left wing ideology. i don't happen to share it. he won the election, i get that, but you just can't convince me that a jack lew or chuck hagel are first class appointments. they're not. nobody's going to buy that. >> how much time do i get to respond to jennifer's points? >> you get about 40 seconds. >> look, i think briefly on senator hagel, he was on the foreign relations committee, he spoke out about iraq, he spoke out about the surge, he has a record, some people disagree with his policies, i think he's imminently qualified, not only obviously because he served bravely for our country but also because he did
of washington's most powerful special interest groups. pro-gun and pro-israel lobbies. dominating chuck hagel point to a president unafraid of going head to head with two powerful lobbying groups that have long wheeleded strong influence in washington. i'm joined by national journal political correspondent beth rinehart who writes about the president's busting second term. >> thanks for having me. >> the president is relishing his approval numbers and the fact that he didn't have to run again. he actually talked about the second term on "meet the press." i want to play that. >> one of the nice things about never having another election again. i will never campaign again. is you know, i think you can rest assured that all i care about is making sure i leave behind an america that is stronger, more prosperous, more stable and secure than when i first came into office. >> the first thing, rahm emanuel when chief of staff, had this policy, you don't take on a fight that you don't have a realistic chance of winning. is this a change? >> that is a change. i mean, the president obama we've seen over

at the fence and look at senator hagel and others, there's a lot of issues surrounding that. the science area is where we have to stay focused. whoever the president would like to serve in his discretion, obviously, that's his call. i don't want to judge where he's going on what motivated him to make that decision, but, clearly, anyone who fills the roles, we would seek to have a good relationship to base policy development in sound science and to pursue the mutual interests that we can find, the commonground we can find in the policy development. as i mentioned to one of the earlier questions today, we had a good dialogue over the past couple months, and we have areas that we disagree on. we represent a broader industry that sometimes sees the world differently than perhaps a regulator might. we support robust regulation, but we believe regulation should be thoughtful, and it should be based in science, and that's what drives our conversation in dealing with the regulators. we welcome the opportunity to work with whoever the president may nominate, whoever the president can get confirmed in

president obama's nominee for defense secretary chuck hagel. our guest are steve clemens followed by a look at emerging marths in developing countries. we'll discuss his book break out nations. washington journal, live at 7:00 eastern on c-span. >> if you ask how many themselves identify as lib tarnse. depending on which poll you look at you might get 10 to 15%. if you give people a battery of questions like do you believe in x or y and you track those, depending on which poll you are looking at you get as many as 30% of americans calling themselves libertarian. if you ask are you economically conservative but socially liberal you get half of americans saying that's what they are. just because people say these things doesn't mean they believe them. if you ask most americans do you want smaller government, they say yes. but then if you ask them to cut any particular item on the budget, they don't want to cut anything. so it's not clear if they really believe anytime. based on the best data i have in writing this book i'd say as low as 10% and as high as 30%. lib tarnse if they were lib tarns
to the tail. >> host: how do senate democrats vote on the name nation of senator chuck hagel? >> guest: organizationally, we have not played into that. groups including iraq veterans, j-street who focus on those issues, and they can talk about that. >> host: carol, arizona, independent caller, hi, carol. >> caller: hi, i was just wanting to ask about the tax reform if you would be straight across the board tax, no loopholes. >> host: adam green. >> guest: opposite of a flat tax is a progressive tax. i would oppose that, but here's why. the simple reason why is that the rich need to pay their fair share, and pretty much every study done shows flat tax increases taxes on the little guy. it's that simple. another idea on the table talking about this. you know, oftentimes, the conclusions in washington are based on what choice did we have on the table which means if they exclude certain choices from being in the discussion, good choices can't be made. a great choice would be congresswoman's millionaire tax going beyond clinton rates, but it's supported in the country saying we're going to
at the list of people that are being recycled in the cabinets, whether it is lew or kerri or hagel, donelon, the top national security advisor, the question really about this profile or is it a question about having no new blood really to bring any sort of change to washington, d.c.? >> when you have a diversity strategy, diversity of voices can only create a better america, whether dealing with policy, whether it is in a company. so if you're only going to deal with the people that you feel comfortable with, where is the true change? and again, my question is, where are those diverse groups now with the president not promoting more women, with the president not promoting more latinos, where are they on these issues? this is a double-standard. if this was a republican administration we would hear a lot about this. feminist groups would be out there raising hot water. right now unless the black caucus comes out, unless the women's caucus comes out, where is schultz schultz? where is -- debbie wasserman schultz, where is rosa today lore row or congresswoman fudge from the brac caucus? i don't
